James Bond DVD Promotion Using Google Earth

James Bond in Google EarthIn a promotion for the new “The James Bond Ultimate Edition DVD“. Here is a description from an e-mail I received:

MGM Home Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment invite you to explore ultimate interactive insight into the James Bond world. Using the incredible Google Earth technology, users can click on individual film titles to open up a chronological walk through each of the classic 20 Bond films. Each location is packed full of info and trivia on Bond’s adventures. Users will also be able to visit the virtual lot at Pinewood Studios, and see some exclusive images from the real home of Bond!

You can download the collection of Bond placemarks here . Each placemark collection contains a large graphic which promotes that movie, and provides a brief description of why Bond was in that location and other trivia. There’s supposedly a game contained within this, but I have yet to figure out how to play. It’s pretty interesting to see all the locations around the world Bond has been.

    Who now owns the home video rights to IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD (1963, UA)? What is their regular mail address for a business letter, please? And who is a high-level contact person? Thanks!

  2. Website Development says:

    Thats pretty cool, I have seen on many occasions where images from Google Earth have been able to play a critical role in website development. It really helps provide a global scale to the site and can provide eye catching imagery that is hard to get anywhere else. It will be interesting to see how sophisticated applications like this get over the next decade.
